Joana Vasconcelos Biography

Juggling with embroideries, laces, crochet-works, patchworks and sparkles directly derived from the Applied Arts and from the traditional Portuguese practice of needlework, Joana Vasconcelos invites the audience to a generous banquet of sculptures and painted textiles, without moderation from the gargantuan artistic avarice which characterises her artwork.

Joana Vasconcelos has transformed this needle technique into a pure artistic expression, sometimes monumental, where lavishness meets quirkiness, in an approach not at all refuting eccentricity or excess, without foregoing delicacy and excellence.

Animals and statues modestly covered in lace mantillas, awarding to their forms such familiarity, with an emphasis especially soft and delicate, sometimes troubling, but always refined.
